Despite sewing on the handles the wrong way - yes it is possible! I have finished my ballerina bag. I think it looks so cute - perfect for a little girl. Oh and I sewed a button on a shirt - it's out of my "to do" pile so it counts towards my tally for the year which now sits at 28. I'm about three months behind in my goal of completing one sewing project per week. It will take a huge effort to catch that up!

On Thursday last week I was amazed to find a wonderful surprise on my desk when I arrived at work. This gorgeous, so terrifically boyish, fabric is a RAK from my friend and crafter-in-crime Nerida which she said she couldn't resist from TokyoMommy. It's just perfect, thanks N - it's going straight to the craft room!
Nerida was also generous in loaning me her little girl's apron pattern designed by The Apron Lady. Here's my final version, the half-reversible Little Flirty Skirty. Oh la la!
And I thought I'd better applique this pullover before a) winter was over b) Kaiden was no longer a size one. This time I used my sewing machine to applique so it didn't take as long.
